Are you ready for our biggest Farmhand Challenge to date?! We are raising $28,000 to purchase a tractor for Lightner Farm! A tractor is vital to many daily activities like plowing the ground and eliminating heavy brush to clear land. We are amazed that our biggest farmhand challenge will also be going to our longest running supplier, Lightner Farm! Started in 1989, it’s always been a father daughter business until Sheryl, the daughter, took over about 5 years ago. Carrying on over 3 decades of faithful produce business, Sheryl keeps the farm running in her father’s name. We are thrilled to be partnering with her to get this tractor and we know every penny will make a huge difference.Donate at the registers!
In an effort to encourage reduction of carbon emissions we are rewarding our members and guests that participate in Co-Op Commutes!
All members and guests who walk, ride a bike, or uses alternative transportation will receive different incentives each month such as stickers, reusable bags, sunglasses, snack bars, seltzers, etc.
Participants just tell the cashier their method of alternative transportation to the Co-Op and they will receive the monthly incentive!
It’s always a good time visiting our friends at Tri Cycle Farms! We have been working with them for almost a decade now to coordinate different projects, cooking classes and community events. We donate 300lbs of organic chicken feed every month for their chickens, and we could not be happier to watch these beautiful birds grow and live happy and healthy lives on the farm. There’s so many ways to volunteer with Tri Cycle, so check out their website below for more info on how to get involved!Learn how to volunteer
We are excited to announce our partnership with Food Loops to offer sustainable solutions for reducing food waste. This has been in the works for quite some time now, and we are proud to say that over 50% of our kitchen packaging and all of our taproom packaging is commercially compostable! We are the first grocery store in NWA to begin a comprehensive food waste/compostable products and recycling program for the back AND front of house!
RED Co-Op labels on our kitchen items indicate it can be composted.
BLACK Co-Op labels on our kitchen items need to be disposed of in the trash.
A refreshing salad and showstopper: pops of color, sweet, cheesy, and a hint of bitter makes this salad perfect for any winter festivity.
The Co-Op is so much more than just a store. It's a community of like-minded people coming together to share really good food. Join us at our next event.View All Upcoming Events
